I fear episode VII will be overhyped.

It's not, I've seen it twice already and it's fantastic. Best since RoTJ, maybe better.

We will see.
I do not trust the masses, Disney, or Lucas.
Just because it is better than 1-3, does not make it good.
That sword saber seemed stupid.

It's not slightly better, it's miles better. And I actually like Revenge of the Sith quite a bit. I have to watch Return of the Jedi again, but it may well be better than that as well.

Hopefully it does stand up to the hype.

I'll accept if we can not use the new movie or Clone Wars, as I have not seen them.

The destruction of Alderaan was justified. I wonder about people who wouldn't think it was justified.
